This is a 16 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on the American Civil War - The Iron Brigade. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
Though destined for fame and glory, the Western Brigade inspired neither awe nor praise at its May 1861 debut in Washington.
The only all-Western infantry brigade serving in the Union’s Eastern Theater armies, it included five colorfully named regiments: The Calico (6th Wisconsin), The Huckleberries (7th Wisconsin), The Babies (19th Indiana), The Ragged Asstetical (2nd Wisconsin), and The Feather-beds (24th Michigan).
Within a matter of months it would become one of the most respected and feared in the Army of the Potomac, thanks largely to its second commander, “a quiet, erect, soldierly appearing little man,” General John Gibbon.
